  • Marie Cocco: The Race That ‘Macaca’ Made

    The unraveling of Virginia Sen. George Allen’s reelection campaign may have begun with a single offensive remark caught on tape, but his competitor’s Lamont-style netroots insurgency is just as responsible for making the race tight.

    More N-Word Accusations Against Sen. Allen Surface

    Three former college football teammates of Sen. George Allen say the Virginia Republican repeatedly used the racial epithet to describe blacks back in the 1970s. And one of those ex-teammates is even putting his name on the record. (Salon ad req’d)

    George Allen 'hearts' Black People
    From georgeallen.com

    I Love Black People!

    In an apparent attempt to control the fallout of his ostensibly racist “macaca” remark, Virginia Sen. George Allen has updated his website with a picture of him embracing a woman with dark skin. But the damage has been done. He’s losing in the polls to his rival for the Senate (and Allen was until recently being touted as presidential material…). (h/t: HuffPo)

  • Ana Marie Cox says historians will study this episode as an example of how NOT to do damage control.

    Macaca-thon!

    Can’t get enough backstory on Va. Sen. George Allen’s racist remark? Neither can the Washington Post, which posted this 1,300-word profile on the object of Allen’s remark, 20-year-old U. Va student S.R. Sidarth.

  • Allen’s lead over his rival for the Senate has evaporated in the wake of his comment. (Go, blog power!)

    Sen. Allen Apologizes for ‘Macaca’ Remark

    The Virginia senator tracked down the university student whom he maligned with the racist remark and apologized, but the damage is already done. In stepping into this steaming pile of macaca, Allen may have just kissed any 2008 presidential hopes goodbye.

    GOP Senator’s Ethnic Slur Provokes Outrage, Apology

    Virginia Sen. (and presidential hopeful) George Allen referred to a young volunteer of Indian descent as “macaque,” which is tantamount to “monkey” or the “N word” among African immigrants. (Much more after the jump… but for quick hits: story / video / word origins)

    Corddry: Unsure if Allen?s Racism Helps or Hurts Him

    Jon Stewart asked “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Corddry if Virginia Sen. George Allen had damaged his image by using a racial slur to describe a young campaign worker. Corddry: ?I don’t know what ?macaque? means, but it sure as sh—sounds racist. And John, here in Virginia, I’m still not sure if that helps or hurts a guy.?
